Round Rock, TX (PRWEB) April 16, 2007
In January of 2006, Home Buying Institute began publishing helpful advice for home buyers. Now, 15 months later, they have announced the latest addition to their home buying resource website -- a tutorial that outlines the home-buying process in 101 steps.
"101 Steps to a Smoother Home-Buying Process" is the latest article to be added to Home Buying Institute's extensive library. But it's more than just an article. It's an exhaustive but well-organized examination of the home buying process, with links to dozens of related resources.
Publisher Brandon Cornett explained his motivations for creating the tutorial:
"The mission of our website is to help first-time home buyers understand the process of buying a home. This tutorial is just another step toward that goal. I designed it to be the ultimate home-buying article ... if people only visit one page on the website, I hope it's this one."
The "101 Steps" tutorial is broken up into sections that coincide with the basic steps in the home-buying process. In turn, each section links to related resources on Home Buying Institute and elsewhere on the Web. In this way, the tutorial offers value by itself, as well as being an excellent list of required reading.
The main topics include:
- Preliminary considerations (credit report, budgeting, etc.)
- Finding a real estate agent
- House hunting
- Making an offer
- Choosing a type of mortgage
- Applying for a mortgage loan
- The home inspection
- Pre-closing considerations
- The real estate closing / settlement process
"It's a two-staged education," explained Cornett. "Just by reading through the tutorial, people will have a much better understanding of the home-buying process in general. And by following the links to the related resources I've provided, readers will get a secondary, more in-depth education on supplemental topics."
